All book talk that doesn't pertain to the episodes we've seen is a SPOILER.
Please use the SPOILER cut below.

*Sigh* I knew this would be a tough episode to take though admittedly I didn't realize we wouldn't see much but are given more of the psychological. So right now I have this love/hate relationship with this episode. It is a brilliant episode. I loved the acting. I love the story telling but I hated what was happening so much. I guess that is actually a sign of a good story though, to envoke so much emotion. So here goes nothing.

Jamie was about to die. He watched MacQuarrie die (so sorry I was spelling it really wrong before) and now he's up to hang. Only a very dark knight comes to his rescue and we are all horrified right along with Jamie. Jamie is then whisked off to a dungeon where he is chained to the wall and in walks BJR quoting Le Morte d'Arthur by Malory only he gets it a little wrong because he's said Britian not England. ("Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil, is rightwise king born of all England.") We find out and Randall heard all about the petition of complaint against him because the Duke of Sandringham had a big mouth. (Stupidhead.) And he burns the thing before Jamie's beautiful eyes (but did you see Randall's eyes because they were all kinds of mad).

Meanwhile, Claire is failing miserably at getting in to see Jamie and ends up being given his personal effects and leaving only to break down outside of the prison, needing Murtagh to kind of take over the whole walking thing. But back at an undisclosed tavern, Angus and Rupert are losing their money to get information which will help them get into Wentworth somehow (Claire I don't get the plan still???). Claire then returns to the prison and ransacks Sir Fletcher (did you catch that this is Frazer Hines who was the original inspiration for Jamie!!!) office but they only find the keys not a "You are here" map of the prison (really why would the guy have a map of his prison).

Randall is going on and on about Jamie seeing Randall in his dreams (pretty sure Randall is the one having the dreams of Jamie) and giving Jamie a noble death (crazy much?). Jamie's not going to surrender to Randall though he'll let Randall see his back (and I was thinking, no Jamie wouldn't do that) but it is ruse to get Randall closer so Jamie can attack but then Jamie's fighting off Marley and in  the end Randall has Marley hold down Jamie's hand while he smashes it (and I fainted). He then "comforts" Jamie and himself with Jamie's hand but Jamie does murmur "I'll kill you". Randall leaves Jamie for a bit while Jamie thinks about why he's making Randall hurt him (sick F).

Claire finds the back door and takes apart the lock (good thinking though I'd think someone discovering that might just put it back together). She then goes into Jamie's cell (first she goes to several other cells calling out his name) and tries to free Jamie but Randall appears saying to Claire that she just appears everywhere (you too buddy you too!). Claire endures some unwanted attention and then attacks Marley and then Randall while Jamie kills Marely, Claire tries to strangle Randall but it doesn't work and soon she's at his mercy which prompts Jamie to offer himself up to keep Claire from harm.

Randall (I affectionately call him F-in' Bastard) nails Jamie's crushed hand to the table and forcibly kisses him but that is when Jamie gets to say his goodbye to Claire with a tender kiss and an I love you. (Have I mentioned just how much I hate Randall?)

Randall walks Claire out and but not before Claire tells Jonathan Wolverton Randall born September 3, 1705 when he's going to die (whoa mad skills Claire! Look at Randall's terrified face.) But he then pushes her down the body shoot. Randall returns to Jamie so he can cut his shirt off and extol over Jamie's back and disgust us all more.

Claire runs off into the woods to find Murtagh and the gang who take her to MacRannoch who is unwilling to help until he discovers who's son Jamie is (Ellen is Helen of Troy I think) but he can't think how because that is Murtagh's job oh and MacRannoch's cows. (Think should be good.)

So I ask, how many Kilts would you give this episode?

I don't know what to say. At first, I was really into this episode. Jenny and Claire tracking through the Highlands looking for Jamie was a think of brilliance (thank you Diana!). Then Jenny, really, torturing a Red Coat for information on Jamie only to talk about Jamie right in front of the man leading me to believe they couldn't leave him alive... thank goodness for Murtagh!

But then we ended up traveling through the Highlands with Murtagh which had it's really funny moments but it was drawn out and rather boring, for me. I just kept wanting them to figure out where Jamie was and go find him but instead we keep moving from town to town, much like Rent, singing and dancing. Psst... Murtagh stick to killing Red Coats.

And then there is this Gypsy which seems rather dangerous to me and I kept wondering what exactly he was going to end up doing to them but as it turns out he's into the whole love thing so he helped Claire for nothing (except the rents previously). But that Gypsy gives Claire a message and Murtagh and Claire run off to go to find Jamie only to find Dougal. So are you thinking Uncle Dougal is there to help... you'd be so wrong! Nope, Jamie Jamie walked right into some Red Coats and is now in Wentworth Prison and sentenced to die! A Dhia! So Dougal suggests they run off and get married? WTF? Okay Dougal, I loved you but now you have me pissed off... but I strangely love it.

And if you go back, Murtagh and Claire have this moment when Murtagh talks about the woman who he loved who turned out to be Ellen, Jenny and Jamie's mom, and Murtagh says he thinks of Jamie as a son. Gosh, I love you Murtagh even though you have the worst plans.

But back to Diobolical Dougal and Claire is agreeing to marry him if Jamie dies. Claire!? But then she convinces Willie, Angus and Rupert to help her liberate Jamie from Wentworth... please make it in time!!!!

So the middle dragged for me but even a 3 Kilt rating is like an 8 for most other shows.

So I ask, how many Kilts would you give this episode?

Title: The Girl on the Train
Author: Paula Hawkins
Pages: 326
Rating: no titleno titleno titleno titleno title
Links: click image

Book Description:
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
